The Biblical and Christian scriptures both prohibit eating pork and certain forms of pig meat. In addition to being considered a abomination, pork contains carrion, blood, and swine-flesh. Jews are also forbidden from eating birds, pigs, and water dwellers with scales or fins. Pigs are also associated with a disease known as trichinosis. This disease is caused by a quarter-inch worm known as the trichina, which digs into the muscles and produces cysts. Trichinosis is fatal and is the most common reason for avoiding pork.

However, if you plan to include a lot of dried fruit, make sure to cut back on the amount as excess dried fruit may add more calories than necessary.
